Freedom Caravan visiting Hyderabad


The Centre for Civil Society (CCS) is organizing its Freedom Caravan program in Hyderabad on August 26 and 27 in association with the Lok Satta movement.

Freedom Caravan is a program that brings young people on college campuses together to explore ideas about individual liberty and economic prosperity. It is visiting 13 colleges across seven cities this year to discuss ‘Why is India Poor?’.

Mr. Parth J Shah, President of CCS, Mr. Barun Mitra of the Liberty Institute and Mr. Jaithirth Rao, Venture Advisor at New Enterprise Associates (India). are among those who will take part in the program.

The caravan will highlight the importance of institutions and policies that support economic freedom. It attempts to expose young people to the moral and intellectual foundations of a free society, create an understanding of the importance of liberal policies in advancing the dignity and prosperity of the poor and create a network of like-minded individuals.

The caravan will be visiting TISS at Roda Mistry College of Social Sciences, Gachibowli, on August 26 and Loyola Academy Degree and PG College, Secunderabad on August 27.
